Family Medicine Practice Residency, Indian

Many of my life circumstances have motivated me to pursue the advantageous field of Family Practice in medicine. Of central importance was growing up in an impoverished Indian community and the lengthy obstacle course which I was forced to successfully complete to break the shackles of poverty and arrive where I am today. In addition to my native India, I have also spent significant amounts of time studying and working with medical care communities in Cambodia and Grenada. Thus, I have added to my cosmopolitan outlook a decided compassion for the medically underserved, and I sincerely hope that I will have the privilege always to have a share in bringing adequate, even outstanding, care to the medically underserved. I firmly believe I would be an asset to your family practice residency program due to my raucous good cheer and profound dedication to my work. Thriving on long hours, the more problems I can solve, and the more smiles that I bring to the faces of my colleagues and especially patients, the happier I am and the more fulfilled I feel.

My primary focus on both the centrality of primary care and patient diversity led me to Family Medicine. I especially enjoyed my senior electives in New York concerning divergent specialties of medicine, relishing the entire gambit: thus, feeling most attracted to what I see as the central, most fundamental aspect of treatment. I appreciate the harmony of Family Practice and the great diversity of functions and concerns that are faced. I find teamwork most fulfilling in this area. My Neurology rotation helped to pull into stark relief a vast array of at least potential challenges in a rather hectic outpatient setting. Since my first primary care elective in my third year, I have come a long way in solidifying what I see as the holistic foundation of fundamental care. I strive in many ways to emulate my role model Dr. XXXX, one of my referees. My other referees are also in Family Practice inclusive fields, Ob/Gyn and Pediatrics: rotations that I especially enjoyed. And I quite fondly remembered my experiences at XXXX preschool, where children were literally crawling on me during playtime activities.

 My avid sports background further strengthens my candidacy. I have a well-developed interest in sports injuries—and have suffered many of them myself. I find sports metaphors to be of excellent service in explaining and especially animating the patient to recovery. I also deeply value the fact that I now have experience at American hospitals quite diverse in nature; Lincoln, an inner-city hospital, as compared to the suburban Sound Shore in Westchester Country. Perhaps it has been my opportunity to work with Dr. XXXX, which is most salient among my professional experiences so far, particularly since he has consistently been voted one of NY’s top doctors. I seek to follow his model of patient advocacy with precision and determination. Our family doctor during my childhood, Dr. XXXX, has also been a long-time inspiration of noble service in trying times.

 Although I was well prepared for my step-two examination, I failed to diagnose and treat myself adequately. I suffered from headaches and insomnia that I found out, only later, were primarily the result of an undiagnosed astigmatism. Now I am super hard at work with unprecedented concentration on step three. I struggle to be all that I can, from the captain of the football team to delivering 18 babies with 6 C-sections in one obstetrics shift alone. The most excellent thing that has ever been said about me is that my laugh makes patients forget how they are suffering. My camaraderie with my colleagues is always paramount; and I look forward to having the privilege of meeting your team.
